Narayana Hospital, Howrah and the Rotary Club of Belur Launched a Cervical Cancer Awareness and Prevention Campaign

News Desk, News Nation 360 : Acknowledging January as World Health Organisation (WHO) Global Cervical Cancer Awareness Month, the Belur Rotary Club, in association with Narayana Hospital, Howrah, proudly launched the 'Cervical Cancer Awareness and Prevention' Project. This campaign intends to raise awareness of cervical cancer's preventable and curable nature, particularly in low- and middle-income nations where it still poses a serious threat to women's health. As part of this project, Narayana Hospital in Howrah will contact schools, arrange for cervical cancer prevention awareness sessions, and conduct an HPV vaccination drive where children can receive a vaccination at no additional cost. To raise awareness about the value of early cancer detection through screening and the HPV vaccine for children, doctors from Narayana Hospital in Howrah will be visiting various schools in and around Kolkata. Schools have already been contacted about this vaccination and awareness campaign, which will include educating teachers and parents about cervical cancer. This awareness campaign, which is part of the World Cancer Day campaign, will take place in February in addition to this month. The project, which encompasses the entire Rotary district 3291, aims to improve the lives of rural women by providing tangible support to government schools in the surrounding rural districts of Kolkata. The objective for the upcoming year is to immunise 2000 girls between the ages of 9 and 14 against the Human Papillomavirus (HPV), and through follow-up projects, to expand these efforts to underprivileged communities. Rotary District Governor 3291, Hira Lal Yadav, conveyed his happiness at seeing the Rotary Club of Belur and its partner clubs start a worthy project at the beginning of the year. The goal of this project is to drastically lower the cancer incidence rate among women in our community. He stated that Rotary recognises the transformative power of partnerships in creating a positive impact on public health and emphasises the significance of cooperative efforts. In keeping with this philosophy, Rotary has partnered with Narayana Hospital in Howrah to launch an important awareness-raising initiative for cervical cancer.
